Thursday Thankfulness and Some Thoughts

UPDATE  to what follows:  Ciara would not tell the vet where she hurt.  Not a sound, not a whimper.  Just a limp.  Vet is pretty sure Mom is right about the shoulder.  Deramaxx and rest for a few days.  If not better by Monday, we will have to talk about x-rays.  Vet is hesitant to do x-rays if not needed because of risk sedation can have on a seizure dog.  So here's hoping rest is the answer.


Thankful that these two are so good with and for each other.

Thankful that Ciara FINALLY for the first time since Phantom left us made her way into her crate this morning.  At the same time, a little concerned that she is stressed about her leg.  We have an appointment with the vet this afternoon.  Mom is thinking it is just a soft tissue injury in her shoulder, but after more than 24 hours with little sign of improvement, it is time to check things out.

You can see they really love each other. Hope Ciara's leg turns out to be nothing serious. My dogs have had the same kind of thing and limped for a few days and everything was fine.

Poor Ciara. It must be so hard on both of them, losing Phantom. Please let us know how she is doing after the vet visit! Sending hugs and prayers for Ciara!

It seems like almost every week someone is limping. Usually after some Rimadyl and some rest, they're good as new. Hope this is just a minor 'rest it' injury.

We are hoping Ciara feels better soon. Maybe the vet will give her some special medicines to help.
And were glad they are such good friends too.

Love the story about the cat. Bet it doesn't come back or at least they will keep the cat inside.
Ciara, I hope they can find some nice medicine for you. Probably just need to rest a little longer. We sure send you lots of purrs and we know that Phantom won't mind if the donkeys become your now. So they send their Hee Haws to you.
